Napa and Wine and Castles-oh my!

I was in Seattle for work this week and as I drove into the city on Monday night, I had a sharp and unexpected pang of longing in my heart for San Francisco.  I spent the months of September through December in the City by the Bay completing an intensive training program for work.  And while it was hard to be away from my family and home-sweet-home, I fell in love with San Francisco, and definitely left a little piece of my heart there when it was time to say goodbye.

And so, with my heart strings tugged, I decided to take a little stroll down memory lane and spent Monday evening curled up in my cozy hotel room over room service looking through all of the amazing photos I have documenting my time in the SF.  And while there are so many great photos and memories to choose from, I decided to post in honor of a fabulous weekend my hubby and I spent in Napa and Sonoma drinking wine, eating cheese, playing tourist, and fulfilling my dream of touring wine country-even discovering our  favorite restaurant of all time along the way.  And of course I also had to share because in the below photos I am wearing one of my favorite tops.  EVER.  But what an incredible time we had exploring and touring gorgeous, perfectly manicured vineyards-particularly this incredible Castle, which was the highlight of our trip, thanks to a recommendation by a dear friend.
